As we are starting to get the first look at some of the specialty food dishes that will be featured at Pandora – The World of Avatar’s Satu’li Canteen you can quickly see that the Walt Disney World Resort chefs placed a great deal of time in creating delicacies that enhance the theme and design of this new land. Disney Parks Blog recently shared the chef’s storytelling magic behind the creation of two specialty desserts for Animal Kingdom’s Satu’li Canteen, the new land’s fast casual restaurant.
“We watched ‘Avatar’ and noted that the Na’vi are in stellar shape – very lean, with beautiful skin and bright yellow eyes,” said Executive Pastry Chef Stefan Riemer. The chefs took inspiration from the film’s tropical environment and the Na’vi colors to create the Blueberry Cheesecake with Passion Fruit Curd. Umm, umm cheesecake!
Chocolate lovers the Chefs had you mind with the creation of this next mouth-watering dessert. Using the inspiration of the healthy Na’vi the Walt Disney World Resort chefs created a Chocolate Cake with a Crunchy Cookie, Banana Cream and Goji Berries. Riemer explained “We used dark chocolate because it’s rich in antioxidants, then add a little crunch with a cookie wafer and the contrast of creamy mousse.” The cake is topped with banana cream, made with a few simple (but delicious) ingredients: cream, white chocolate and bananas, with a little drizzle of lemon. “The chocolate-banana is a great flavor combination,” says Riemer. “Then we added goji berry on top – it tastes a little like a raisin, and we hydrated it with simple syrup. The taste of the goji berry with the banana cream and chocolate is a lovely balance of flavors.” Excuse me while I wipe my mouth.
